Welcome to Our Blog.

The Blog is a place we like to share some of our recent photo sessions, talk about the amazing people we get to work with, and let you in on a little bit of our crazy lives.

Leave it to us to visit New York during one of the worst snow storms in 60 years! Of course it did make for a great photo. We hope you stick around to enjoy some of our work and get to know us. We promise to share some of our crazy adventures. If you feel like it be sure to show us some love by leaving us Blog comments, they always make us feel good.

Fun-takes & out-takes from the studio.

Now that I have Amanda's permission, I thought I would share a few more photos from the studio. Amanda was gracious enough to be our model when Katya was learning about studio lights. Being that they are also friends, I thought I would take some photos of them together. They picked up a couple props I had around and started having some fun.

Amanda also happens to be my beautiful niece!

Katya's job shadow at McCloud Photography ~ Monmouth Oregon

Yesterday we had the pleasure of meeting Katya. She spent the day with us doing a job shadow. Katya is studing photography at one of the local high schools and plans on pursuing photography after she graduates. I know she will do well with her bubbly and driven personality. She is one of the few high school kids I have met who is making plans and saving for things for her future business. How cool is that?! She shared some of her work with us and I can say she is off to a good start!

After taking about the business side of photography, we of course spent some time in the studio. Katya had a chance to take some photos and I couldn't help but take a few of her. I had a great time with Katya, she reminds me a little bit of myself when I was getting started. I thought I would share a few of the photos I took of this young photographer.

Natalee's baby photos at the studio ~ Oregon Baby Photographers~McCloud Photography

More photos from Natalee's 4 month session. It was such a fun session! I can't believe how much she had changed since the last photos. She did so well and let us try several different things. I am not sure what my favorite is. She looks so cute in all of them but I think she seemed to enjoy the Oregon State University Pom Poms the most. She is a definite OSU fan! Enjoy the photos.

One of our recent projects. ~ McCloud Photography

Here is a sign we recently made for one of our bridal shows. We often find it fun to do other creative work besides photography to keep our minds flowing. Thought we would show you a pic before we hung it up in our studio.

Happy Birthday to Justin! ~ McCloud Photography

We are taking a rare day off tomorrow to celebrate Justin's Birthday! I thought I would share one of my favorite images I captured of him. I just love how this photo captures his smile. It was that smile that helped me fall in love with him. Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband.

When I am 95......

We recently had the honor of taking family photos at a 95th birthday party. As I was going through the images, I loved this one of the birthday girl. A truly beautiful woman! It made me think about when I mature and how I hope I can have this much poise and elegance. I also hope that I can be surrounded by so many loving friends and family.

A photo of a lovely woman. Happy 95th Birthday!

A little fun with light in Vegas! ~ McCloud Photography

We just thought we would share a quick photo. One of the nights we were out in Las Vegas we spotted this great light and thought it would make a fun photo. We were only armed with our little point & shoot but we were still able to get a interesting image. The people passing by thought we were a little crazy but we're always up for some fun!
